A voice came from the cloud, saying, "This is my Son, whom I have chosen; listen to him."
For the Father loves the Son and shows him all he does. Yes, and he will show him even greater works than these, so that you will be amazed.
The Son is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.
